Chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNLBP) has become a major global public health problem. Its high incidence rate and high disability rate are so damaging both to individuals and communities. At present, many countries' clinical guidelines recommend exercise therapy. Breath therapy is one of the exercise therapies, playing an important role in exercise therapy.
